HARRISON COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - An organization in Harrison County has plans to take money from crimes and put it toward helping kids.

It's part of the Safe Kids program. With help from the Harrison County prosecutor, proceeds taken from drug dealers will be used to provide car seats for families who need them.

This weekend the group plans to give away 100 car seats to parents who participate in a safety clinic.

The program runs from 9 a.m. to Noon on Saturday at the Harrison County Justice Center.
